Online Orders

Using the shopping cart on this website with payment via debit, credit card or PayPal:

Once you have filled your shopping cart you can view your cart items by selecting ‘View Cart‘ or select the shopping cart icon found in the page header on the top right. Double check your cart for accuracy before scrolling down and selecting ‘Proceed to Checkout.’ This will take you to the checkout page where you enter your billing address, shipping address (if different), payment info, optional order note, etc. Again, be sure that your information is correct.

If you are using a debit or credit card select that option under the payment options and enter the necessary information then select ‘Pay Now.’ 

If you prefer to pay with PayPal, select that option. This redirects you to a secure PayPal website where you will enter your billing information, etc. When you’re finished, select ‘Pay Now.’ Once your payment has been submitted you will be redirected to an order confirmation page. You should receive a confirmation email from us and PayPal within a few minutes. Be sure to check your spam folder!

Mail Orders

If you are able, we prefer that you place an order through our website. Ordering online results in faster order processing times, quick communication and status updates, payment with credit card or PayPal, and easier refunds when necessary. Our website is also up-to-date with growing info, inventory, and availability.

We cannot accept international orders via mail-in as we cannot accept foreign checks or money orders. This includes Canadian checks written in USD. All international orders must be placed through our website.

If you would like to pay with cash, check or money order, a mail order is the way to do it. Print the 2024 Order Form and fill in the appropriate information including your name, address, and contact information. Be sure to write the packet size, quantity, plant type, variety name, and price for each item you are ordering. Remember to include the appropriate shipping and handling charges for your order. Refunds, not substitutions, will be issued for out-of-stock products. You may also use the online shopping cart to make your selections, and print your completed ‘Checkout’ page to mail to us.

Please enclose cash (US$), check, or money order for the full amount. We do not accept debit or credit card payment for mail-in orders. We also do not accept phone or fax orders.

Mail a completed order form with payment to:

Adaptive Seeds,
25079 Brush Creek Rd.
Sweet Home, OR 97386

Mail-in orders are processed once a week so there may be a slight delay in receiving your order.

Phone or Fax

We do not accept phone or fax orders.
If you have questions or concerns about an order, we prefer you email us at:

Shipping & Handling Charges

All orders are shipped via USPS Ground Advantage or Priority Mailing. (We do not ship via UPS or FedEx.)

If you are a Southern grower or need your seeds expedited, email us and we can usually make it happen. Expect orders to arrive 1-5 business days after shipment depending on location.

International orders can take 2-6 weeks to arrive, depending on destination and/or customs inspections, but more often than not, packages arrive much quicker. You will receive email confirmation and a tracking number when your order has shipped.

Shipping and handling rates are applied at checkout to the order subtotal and are as follows for orders that do NOT include garlic or shallots:

Domestic (US) Orders:

$25.00 or less = $4.00

$25.01 – $50.00 = $6.50

$50.01 – $74.99 = $8.00

Over $75= FREE Shipping*

Canadian Orders**:

$30.00 or less = $15.50

$30.01 – $60.00 = $18.50

$60.01 – $99.99 = $25.00

Over $100.00 = $45.00

*Free shipping for orders over $75 excludes garlic and/or shallots orders. Garlic & shallot shipping rates can be found below. 

**Due to recent changes with USPS, we’ve had to increase shipping and handling charges. Please note that international orders that weigh more than 8 oz may be subject to additional shipping charges. We will contact you via email if this applies to your order. 

Garlic Shipping

Garlic and shallots will begin shipping the week of September 18th. Orders that contain both Garlic/Shallots and Seed Packets may be held until Garlic/Shallots are ready to ship. All orders are shipped via USPS and USPS Tracking is included for every order. We do not ship garlic or shallots internationally – thanks for understanding!

Domestic (US) Orders that include garlic or shallots will incur shipping charges as follows:

$20.00 or less = $7.00

$20.01 – $100.00 = $10.00

$100.01 – $200.00 = $15.00

$200.01 – $300.00 = $30.00

Over $300 = $45.00

International Shipping Policy

As of April 2020, we no longer ship orders internationally, with the exception of Canada.

We require that all orders to Canada are made through the website and not mail-in as we cannot accept foreign checks or money orders. Due to customs restrictions, international orders cannot exceed $400.00. It is the responsibility of the international purchaser to know the rules of the destination country. 

We are unable to provide additional export/import documentation or Phytosanitary Certificates. We are a small, farm-based seed company and our production volume is not large enough to justify the seed loss or financial cost for these tests or documentation. When we shipped internationally, items were sometimes released once questions were answered but customs officials prohibited the release of many packages. Problems with customs occurred so frequently that we had to stop shipping outside of the US and Canada. For customers outside of the US and Canada, it might work to try having your order shipped to a US or Canadian address and having a friend bring it to you. Please follow the rules of your respective countries.

No refunds will be issued for international orders that are undelivered or intercepted by customs. All sales are final.
